Tool Chest #4: Shaping and adding Spacers to the Handles

04-05-2010 12:14 AM by Rob Drown | 2 comments »

Roy (Underhill) had the basic shape of the handles turned for us by a local chair maker. I shaped mine and added a spacer so I could get my stubbie fingers around the grip. I put a thread insert on the back side of the spacer to aid in mountng them to the chest. i This picture shows the profile I came up with.

Garden Chair #8: The Back Revisited

04-04-2010 11:34 PM by Zuki | 2 comments »

I was initially going to make the back of the chair straight, however upon closer inspection I noticed the back of the model chair was curved. I went back and purchased another smaller piece of poplar for the back. After I planed and jointed the edges I sketched out the curve for the back. I fired up the BS with the original 3/8 6T blade and it would go nowhere so I decided to install my ½ 3T blade. What a difference in cutting . . . holy cow. It was a little rougher than the small...

Interview with Todd Clippinger

04-04-2010 10:56 PM by Troy | 12 comments »

Meet Todd Several months ago, I emailed a guy asking him about a piece of equipment I saw in his shop online. We have the same mortising machine and I was having trouble setting mine up, mostly cause I didn’t read the manual fully. He tried his best to understand and help me, but I was a bit hopeless at the time. Eventually, I figured out the machine, but what developed after was a solid friendship.  Todd with one of his many works  Fortunate at that time also, Todd Clippin...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #4: Extension table

04-04-2010 10:39 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Went to the Re-Store to get a piece of counter top material for the saw extension. They had a “could not refuse” deal on brand new, flat pack, maple kitchen cabinets. So the kitchen got a face, and I got the old counter top.I cut 2 pieces to size along with a piece of plywood (20 X 31) and lined them up and drilled some locating holes. Laminated the whole works together. Of course, I forgot to mark how it all went together and had to scrape all the glue off and do it...

Ive had an experience here at lumber jocks that has caused me to think on this topic today. early this morning i awoke was around 4am…so i went to read my email and catch up with that.

Reclaiming Antique Lumber #1: Reclaimed Trestle Table

04-04-2010 04:49 PM by chrisstef | 0 comments »

I’ve recently landed a huge score of lumber from a demo job we have been doing on an old 1875 post and beam house here in Connecticut. I’ve had my hands full lately in denailing, planning, and truing up stock to make this trestle style table for the wife. I dug out 5 pieces of 2” thick lumber from the pile, cut the areas out which were loaded with cut nails, and started my freestyle build. I half lapped the boards in order to “stretch” then out to the length...

Thank you Gary (Bureaucrat) for making me aware that I will have been a member of LJ for a whole year (within 6 days). I would like to thank all of you guys and gals for the friendly camaraderie that we have shared over the last year. It has meant a lot to me and added a whole new dimension to my life. I don’t think of you as just friends, but more like brothers and sisters because of our shared passion for woodworking. I know that we all have different views on politics, religio...

Jet BandSaw #1: Jet 707200 10Inch Band Saw With Stand Model JWBS-10OS

04-04-2010 08:31 AM by LarryDNJR | 4 comments »

I went a little out of town today south of Columbus to Circleville here in Ohio to a place called Grandview Weekend Outlet that my folks had told me about. It is kind of like a big lots/odd lots liquidation outlet store. I was going through the hardware/tool section when I happened upon a busted open cardboard box that ended up being a Jet 707200 10Inch Band Saw With Stand Model JWBS-10OS. Sticker on it had it listed at $95.00. I initially tried to haggle with the guy starting at $70.00 h...
